If you’re anything like us, you’ll be anxious to get outdoors by the time spring rolls around. In the spirit of “it’s never too early,” you can begin planning now for sunny adventures with the new The Road Less Travelled Northern Vietnam Walking luxury tour from Butterfield & Robinson.
This trip includes multiple opportunities to set off on foot to discover the beauty, culture, history and fascinating culinary traditions of Northern Vietnam.
Dates determine specific itinerary details, but a sample tour of the country’s sensory-rich locations begins in Hanoi, with visits to Hoan Kiem Lake, the city’s lively Old Quarter, and guided Cyclo jaunts to explore temples and fortresses. Learning about the country’s coffee culture also comprises part of the experience, along with chef-led cooking classes and plenty of time to shop and peruse museums.
Long hikes will take in peaceful countryside locations beyond the city, where rice fields and limestone cliffs make up the landscape. Along the way, meet members of the Tay community and visit with local farmers who use centuries-old agricultural traditions.
During the trip, indulge in Vietnamese culinary specialties or participate in activities, including floating in ancient caves, wildlife viewing, forays into the forested mountains of Mai Chau, and the fascinating villages of Ninh Binh. Curated by award-winning Experience Designer Nathan Lane, 2023 departures for the sensory-rich trip include May 11–18, May 21–28, Oct. 7–14 and Oct. 18–25.
